Environmental Initiatives

Going Green

We take pride not just in how we treat our patients, but how we treat our environment as well. Dr. Schneider has instituted several environmentally friendly initiates in our office including:

  • Recycling all non-contaminated paper (any paper with personal patient information is shredded first).
  • Recycling all non-contaminated plastics and metals.
  • Using Digital Radiographs - eliminates dental photographic and lead waste.
  • Using non-mercury containing fillings – reduces environmental mercury.
  • Using environmentally friendly cleaning products when available.
  • Turning off/unplugging all unused electrical devices.
  • Uses high energy efficient heating and cooling.
  • Uses high energy efficient lighting.
  • Extra insulation on the outside walls.
  • Plans to add solar panels in the future.

Please let us know if there are additional steps you feel we can take to make our office more environmentally friendly.
